Dear Readers,


Welcome to the Williamsville Farmers Market new blog.  And thank you to Localharvest for this opportunity. We just ended our second successful market season.  The weather cooperated, which made for a wonderful open-air shopping experience. Our community is really enjoying the benefits of buying local . . .  from our farmers early spring greens to late fall potatoes. I have pounds of potatoes and winter squash in my "root cellar".  I'm looking for info on preserving food easily over winter to share with our patrons next season.  I would love to hear from you! 


Think local first whenever possible.

Indeed, I have to agree with Lynn. The community thrived during the season and afterward we are still thriving..thanks to all of the local farmers.
Here is some advice I found on another website for winter storage...

Onions will last for months stored in a cool, dry, ventilated place. Potatoes should be stored in a cool (but not cold, don’t put them in the refrigerator) dark place. Store winter squash the same way and it should last for months. When you’re getting your vegetables ready for storage, be sure to pull out any bruised or damaged pieces and eat those first. Storing them with the other vegetables could make the whole batch go bad more quickly. When stored properly, most vegetables will retain their original flavor and nutrient content.
Enjoy..and happy eating!!
